I just want to say a sad goodbye to Pano. :o( ... It's like a well-loved pet that has been poorly for a few years but is still part of the family and is at the vets and you know the end will come any minute now.

Granite scenery


More splendid granite walking country.

Ahead are the three highest peaks of La Sierra de La Cabrera, Cancho de La Bola in the centre, Cancho Gordo to its right and Cancho Largo further right still. Cancho Largo is taller than Cancho Gordo by only 2 metres at 1.564 m (5,131 ft).

Yet another granite one!

La Sierra de La Cabrera. All oldies from me for a few days at least while I take it easy after an operation for a detached retina. All OK, I just can't spend long in front of a screen for a bit!

Granite again! (Perhaps on Z for the rocky detail) I wanted to post some local shots but today (and the past week) has been clouded by another calima dust / sand cloud from the Sahara. Miserable! So, another from my archives!

Unexpected snow storm about to hit.

Sierra de La Cabrera. I know I've posted this before but I'm happy for it to have another airing!

Granite, cistus and sky.

Cancho de La Bola. Home of vultures. There's one soaring above La Bola itself; that white guano-stained boulder at the top. Taken from a snowy GR10 (long-distance path from Lisbon to Valencia). This shows a middle section of La Sierra de La Cabrera.

Wild lavender, babble and dapple

Iberian lavender (or cantueso) and mountain stream babbling over granite and dappling in the late spring sun a few years ago.

Typical granite extravaganza. Favourite scrambling, rock-hopping and walking country, La Sierra de La Cabrera. This would have been on one of my very early walks here, when I was blown away by the granite forms. 100 + walks later and I still am!

Granite 'sculpture'

Typical granite, La Sierra de La Cabrera. I'm not sure if it's a Henry Moore or a Barbare Hepworth.

Ancient field wall, heather and granite.

Bosigran, Zennor, Cornwall. South West Peninsula Coast Path. The remains of neolithic field walls said to be the oldest stone constructions still used for their original purpose and possibly up to 8,000 years old.

Torre de Valdemanco. H. A. N. W. E. everyone!

24 Mar 2012 37 33 155
A cold but good day scrambling and walking in the Sierra de La Cabrera. The Torre de Valdemanco is the spire upper left. More visible from some angles than from others. Apparently it is possibe to scramble up it without a rope but I didn't fancy it, especially as the rock was very icy!

Sierra de La Pedriza

A very hot day. A view of the less frequented easten side of the range. The western and southers sides are thronged with day-trippers from Madrid.

Carn Brae Castle in the fret (mist) and heather

Carn Brae, Redruth, Cornwall. (One of the very few photos of Cornwall not previously uploaded on ipernity. I did post a few of these on Pano which one or two of you may remember.)
